Why Are You So Friendly?

Why Are You So Friendly?

- Jessica Castillo

Hi, my name is Jessica Castillo.  When I was younger, I used to think that Pregnancy Resources was a place where they just help with diapers, but never realized that they help so much until I went with my first pregnancy in 2008.
             When I came in, I was nervous and semi-scared because I didn’t know what to expect.  At the time, I was in the world, and I only wanted the things they physically gave away.  But when I came in, I noticed something different.  They were so welcoming and friendly-especially Mrs. Jenny the nurse.  I would sit with her and talk to her about how my family was before Christ came to my life , and I love how she would listen to me.  I thought to myself “why are they so friendly to a person they just met?”  Little did I know that they had something so powerful and special in their heart-and that was Jesus Christ.
             When I started taking the classes they, of course, offered the free diapers.  I didn’t want to get anything out of it, but to top it off they would ask me if I wanted to receive our LORD Jesus Christ my Savior in my heart.  I thought “that is so weird, what are they talking about?”  So, I would always say “maybe next time.”I am very happy to say that in March of 2009, I received our LORD Jesus Christ into my heart and life at my church. After that, I realized why everyone was so nice and compassionate.  I love their classes and the way they pray each time.  Every time I went after that, I tried getting everything I could out of it because I wanted to teach my daughter to be a good child of God.
             Now my daughter is almost 4-years old, and I have a second daughter-a 7 month old.  I’m so happy to have come to Pregnancy Resources.  May God bless you in what you are doing because you touched my heart, and I hope that so many girls who are out there—maybe scared, lonely, or depressed-can come in and get help spiritually and financially too.  Thank you so much everyone who supports Pregnancy Resources-you are making a huge difference in our lives. God Bless You!

Jessica is now married to the father of her children and attends church.  Many other family members have also come to Christ!
